Video conferencing has helped many families of divorce cope with the struggles of staying connected while living apart. A recent article in the Huffington Post details how Utah resident Michael Gough worried that his ex-wife’s relocation to Wisconsin would hinder his parental involvement. He sought to have the right to video conference with his daughter and as a result Utah was the first state to pass legislation for virtual visitation in 2004. Since then, Wisconsin, Florida, Texas and North Carolina have all passed similar legislation.
“With video conferencing, I was able to read bedtime stories, help her with her homework and even watch her open up a present,” said Gough.
